If you want to receive an immediate understanding about why you shoplift, discuss your upcoming court case or wish to discuss a personal issue that is troubling you which may be related to your shoplifting behavior, you can speak confidentially to an experienced, private Personal Coach from our national non-profit organization.
Your Personal Coach will listen to your story, answer your questions, offer explanations and recommend a focus for you which can change your perspective, influence your court case, speed up your recovery and help resolve the shoplifting issue for you.
If you are a parent or spouse, sibling, other family member or even just a friend of someone who shoplifts and would like to learn more about how you can help your loved one, you too may schedule a confidential session with a Personal Coach.

What are the Credentials of a Personal Coach?
Your Personal Coach will always be either a certified psychologist with a Ph.D. degree who is trained and experienced in helping people with a shoplifting problem, or Mr. Peter Berlin, the founder of Shoplifters Anonymous and NASP, who has volunteered to conduct several sessions each month. For more information on Mr. Berlin’s background click here.
What is a Telephone Coaching Session All About?
Your personal Coach will listen to your story, ask questions, answer your questions, offer explanations, and recommend what you can do now to help prevent a future incident.
He/she will also provide recommendations for your court case (if you have a charge pending) and a full assessment of your shoplifting issue with specific recommendations about how to resolve it… forever.
At the end of the session, upon your request, your Coach will prepare a written report for you, your attorney or the court which truthfully explains your actions. This usually results in a more favorable outcome.
Is There a Cost?
Yes, however, as a non-profit organization we strive to keep our fees low. All our fees are designed to cover only the basic cost of providing the service.
The cost for a 30 minute session is $55 – including the written report.
The cost for a 60 minute session is $85 – including the written report.
To help you and your Coach learn more about you, it is required that you complete NASP’s FREE Self-Assessment BEFORE your Coaching session. Click here to access the Self-Assessment.
How Do I Get Started?
We recommend that you get started by scheduling one 60 minute session and then if you want to continue, you may choose to do so. If you schedule a 60 minute session but wish to stop after 30 minutes, you will pay for only a 30 minute session.
While it is important not to miss a coaching session, we recognize that people may have to postpone or cancel a session. The following Cancellation Policy will help allow the Coach to re-assign the time which was previously assigned to you.
- Sessions postponed or canceled more than 48 hours in advance – No Fee
- Sessions postponed or canceled less than 48 hours in advance – $30 Fee
